Atom-down M lint half $ a MONDAY, DEC, 11, 194? Algona (Iowa) Advance—* Algona high school took a nip for most of the first half •nd woke up too late as the Bulldogs fell to their first defeat of the season after three /straight victories at Humboldt Friday night, 68-62. They took on Webster CI- ty Saturday night In another conference battle and will host Hampton hero Friday in another loop tilt. If a their lone game for the week. Algona fell behind by 20 , points at 37-17 late in the sec« ond .quarter and a furious second half rally almost but never quite caught the Wildcats. Algona got within one point three times in the fourth quarter but never could pull even. Some great third quarter rebounding plus tenacious tactics by the Bulldog guards turned the tide after it was 39-23 at the intermission. ROGER MEYER started the , second half exploits with two quick baskets and then about everyone got in the act. Dale Pedersen hit from the side and Rich Black got a steal to narrow the count to 41-31. Craig Taylor's rebound and two Meyer free throws cut the margin to eight and Denny Richter's rebound bucket cut it to six. Humboldt got two free throws and a layup from 'guard Rick Greene but Meyer came back with a short shot, and Black and Pedersen counted on layups after steals to make it 45-43 With 2:25 left. Algona was down 50-45 at the quarter mark. 'They continued to pepper away and Taylor's two free throws brought it to 53-52. Sleiter got a jump shot but Black countered as did Taylor after a short basket by 6'7" Steve Carlson. There was 2:34 left when iSleiter hit a short one and he tgot a rebound shortly after. "Algona was down by five with 1:25 left but two Dale Pedersen free throws and a layup cut it to two points. WITH 26 SECONDS left, Meyer got a steal and drove for a layup. , He missed but was fouled and made one of two. Had he got the drive and! ,the charity toss, it would have been tied. The early moments of the game were disastrous. Humboldt pulled away to a 7-0 lead before Pedersen got Algona on the Scoreboard with a long one. The Bulldogs tied it at 13 with a swisher, by Pete but then Humboldt outscored Algona 24-4 in the next eight minutes and that's when they got that 37-17 lead. A Bulldog flurry near . the end of the half got it . cut to 16 points and the locals started from there in the third period but wore / too far behind to get the job done. There were some good efforts in this defeat, though. Pedersen's 14 points tied Meyer for high and he and Black did some great pressing antics in the third and fourth quarters. Taylor, hobbled by a bad leg for two weeks, .came off the bench and led the third quarter charge and finished with 10. ALGONA HIT a very respectable 20 of 28 free throws but Humboldt was positively deadly, getting 20 in only 23 tries. Guard Jeff Larsen was perfect with nine-for-nine and finished with 19 points. He got ten of them in that firs.t half with some fancy driving and took the ball downcourt most of the time with good success. Carlson helped the Wildcats pile up a huge rebounding advantage in the first half but got only 10 points for the game and was anything but impressive despite his 67" size. Humboldt had another big guy, 6'5" Norm Silbaugh, but he was well contained, in the second Allen and Max Laird 2 each and Dale Briggs 1. .
